But if you know for a fact there are some apps you just don't use, it makes perfect sense to remove them from the auto lunch system boot up list.

Android think free/unused ram is wasted ram so it tries to preload as much as possible into the ram, but Android quickly and automatically free ram if needed! Manually clearing the ram is stupid because Android will then again see the free/unused/wasted ram and again start to preload as much as possible into the ram!
My advice is, do not worry about the amount of free ram because Android handles it automatically!

Game Hub,ChatOn (if you don't use it), Maps, Music Hub,Yahoo news, S-voice..Of course, you will need to root your phone first, but if you don;t want to root your phone, go to settigns>apps manager>all apps and then choose apps which you want to disable.
and you can also try to disable lock screen Ripple Effect, use some cache cleaner apps, and you can also try to set background apps limit on developer options.

I'm using a SanDisk card and once in a blue moon my SIII would jusy stop seeing the card.
And what works to make if functional again is, I just load it into my brother-in-law galaxy tab 10.1. And let mount there.
Then it works fine again in my Siii. No formating, no data loss. It's odd but true.
It's working nice, but when i'm trying to download apps from appstore, it says that memory isn't enough...
still 16gb microSD...but the internal storage is over 100mb. also it says it's 11 gb, what can i do : / ?
not recomended to buy, the battery is suck and the phone main inside is suck

One thing I would recommend is to let the phone format the card before you use it.
I had to look up the problem when my friend had problems with his S3 (you probably saw the post), and it turned out to be his SD card.
If you allow the S3 to format the card it should format it in FAT32 format. You PC might format it in EXFat format, which some S3 phones don't seem to like.
By formatting it in the S3 you know that the phone will recognise it.
Having problem with my SD card causing my S3 to freeze from time to time and Camera just stop working until I set to Phone storage. Master (brand) stay away from it. I thought I got a good deal with such cheap price. I'm going for Samsung 64GB this time and I gonna need help again (Freefaller) if you don't mind :)

Guys.. I just bought this phone from a friend "used phone".. It is working very fine with me and the touch screen is working pretty well and it is too sensitive too.. But I discovered something strange.. In light black screen and when I am setting in a dark place, I can see 6 or 7 dark black spots and they are only appear to me in the light black screen no more.. is it normal or what??
Another thing, Is it normal for the touch screen and the soft keys to be sensitive like this?
Thanks in advance guys.
